Why I Might Get Excommunicated


Kim said...

Looks great. What are you using? Is that paint? I've been thinking about adding color.

Miss Yvonne said...

Sounds like something my kid would do!

Hey Kim,

What I have been doing lately is to first rough out the panel in pencil.

Once I get it the way I want it, I go over the final with pen and then do a cleanup with eraser to take most of the pencil marks off.

Next I scan the image in as Black and White and do second cleanup using JASC Paint Shop Pro. I then increase the color depth and add the color.

I also use Paint Shop Pro on my photoshop jobs. Some people use GIMP as their photo editor since it's free, but I have a copy of Paint Shop and I am used to it so I have stuck with it.

Pain Shop also allow a free trial so that was what got me hooked in the first place.

Keep churning out your stuff. I have been busting a gut on your panels.

Hey Ms Yvonne. Well,t his is something MY KID TOLD ME HE WAS GOING TO DO, so I warned him I was using it.

I could see your kiddo and Emo doing it though. ;-)

Have you ever seen Monty Python's Meaning of Life? There's a part with a hugely obese (1000+ pound) man who eats everything in the restaurant, and finally the waiter brings him a wafer. The man refuses, and says "I couldn't eat another bite" but the waiter persists. "It's only a wafer" he says.

So the man eats it and explodes, guts everywhere.

I watched that when I was 8. Around the time I took my first communion.

I will stop the story here, because I don't want to go and remind God what I said to the priest. I think maybe He's forgotten by now.
